Night at the Museum

DEXTER, Maine — The Bangor Savings Bank parking lot will be turned into a drive-in movie theatre on Friday, Aug. 17 as the Dexter Key Club will be showing “Night at the Museum II.” The Key Club is sponsoring the fundraiser to benefit the Dexter Historical Society and the Grist Mill Museum.

The Key Club has a variety of activities scheduled from 5–8 p.m. prior to the movie showing. There will be tours of the Grist Mill Museum and Carr School, a bounce tent, and a viewing of Dusters antique cars.

There will also be Treasure Hunt created by Judith and Roger Brawn. This event was previously held as part the Dexter Days and Wild West celebrations in past years. The winner will receive a $100 prize. Other events include a Kiwanis quilt raffle, bake sale and a 50/50 raffle. The Key Club will have a table for disposal of old cell phones, ink cartridges and other recyclable items. The Key Club raised over $600 last year from recycling items.

There will also be civic organizations selling items prior to the movie. The Grist Mill Museum and Key Club will have tables with merchandise available. The Key Club will donate their proceeds to benefit the Children of Peace International organization.

Rick Munday will also have his hot dog wagon there to sell food.

The movie will start around 8:15 p.m. and it should be over around 10 p.m. The activities and movie will be held in the municipal parking lot behind Bangor Savings Bank. Spectators can either sit in the parking lot or bring their own folding chairs.
